to be prohibited. those orders have either expired or been withdrawn. some people have moved out of the city, in fact, one of our people that we contacted was a person that had been 51 50'd and had a firearm. we called to ask about the firearm. the person lived in marin. said he had the firearm. they went to marin. that person had 71 guns in his residence that are now property for safekeeping with the department of justice until his mental health condition is five years old. and the misdemeanor prohibitions have a 10 year shelf life and they fall off the list. so, currently we have no backlog in san francisco. the only cases for prohibited persons that we have yet to touch, we received six this month. one has been contacted -- one has been closed. one has said that he no longer has the gun. we have to make him sign a penalty of perjury form. stating that fact we have four that are new yet to talk to. so, of the 516 originally they have all been investigated and monthly we close them out before the end of each month. so, san francisco is current as far as prohibited persons on that list. now,
